The original rapid-deploy anti-vehicle and electric barrier fencing system – first used in tandem on the London 2012 Olympics – is now even quicker and easier to roll out with a pre-configured ‘ends’ to pulse-protected ‘zones.’ SecureGuard HVM temporary barrier fencing system Three renowned names in perimeter security have collaborated to incorporate the new rapid-deploy electric fence technology into the established SecureGuard HVM temporary barrier fencing system. Electric and electronic fencing expert, Harper Chalice Group Limited has developed RapidPulse, a pre-configured ‘start’ and ‘stop’ to each pulse-monitored ‘zone’, to allow rapid deployment of its PulseSecure system. PulseSecure system Steel fencing manufacturer, Zaun Limited has created special pairs of posts for the anchor point fencing panels Steel fencing manufacturer, Zaun Limited has created special pairs of posts for the anchor point fencing panels, with crossed bracing bars to bear the load of the electric cabling. The system can be supplied with any of Zaun’s existing fencing panels – including HiSec, HiSec Super 6 or ArmaWeave – all deployed super-fast with no foundations on top of SecureGuard HVM barriers from Highway Care Security. “This is set to revolutionise the market for temporary high security utilities, roadworks and construction compounds without the need for any civil or ground works,” says Zaun sales and marketing director Chris Plimley. Perimeter intrusion detection Trial installations have seen Harper Chalice, Highway Care Security and Zaun deploy 30m of HVM barriers and fencing with perimeter intrusion detection in just one hour. The partners first proved the concept at the London 2012 Games, at which they secured various sections of the Olympic Park perimeter with temporary HVM barriers and fencing combined with PulseSecure. RapidPulse perimeter security system The overall system provides a psychological barrier as well as a physical deterrent" The RapidPulse innovation now makes it possible to install perimeters temporarily, break them down, and redeploy them in a fraction of the time, making secure but mobile compounds a reality as works progress during a project. Harper Chalice MD Chris Hackett says: “The overall system provides a psychological barrier as well as a physical deterrent. And it offers a fantastic solution for ongoing security when a breach in a permanent perimeter is required temporarily for repair, maintenance or upgrade, without reducing the overall protection of the site.” The system is fully compliant with BS 1722 Part 14 and Part 17 and can be supplied either galvanised or polyester powder-coated with all components manufactured in the UK. CCTV columns, turnstiles and access portals Each post and panel can also be supplied up to 3.5 metres total in height, while pedestrian and vehicle gates can also be incorporated, as can CCTV columns, turnstiles and access portals. The system is ideal for using around high security temporary utilities and construction sites, to protect road works or at major events that might be at risk of protests, riots or terrorist activity. SecureGuard with RapidPulse for effective intrusion detection SecureGuard with RapidPulse provides protection against vehicle attack, pedestrian intrusion and rock fall and debris dispersion SecureGuard with RapidPulse provides protection against vehicle attack, pedestrian intrusion and rock fall and debris dispersion. SecureGuard was developed specifically for the G8 Summit in Northern Ireland and has since been deployed at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games, the NATO Conference in South Wales and the Nuclear Security Summit in The Hague. It forms part of the National Barrier Asset and has been used to secure the main political parties’ party conferences over recent years. Mobile high security solutions SecureGuard is a mobile high security range of products from Highway Care all tested to PAS68:2010 to withstand multiple attacks by a 7.5 tonne truck at speeds of 20, 30 and 50mph without them breaching a security perimeter. Mat White, Highway Care Security sales director, says: “The increased threat of terrorism and high value crime is driving the need to provide high security sites and critical infrastructure with safe and effective physical protection. This provides the ultimate in rapid rollout solutions.”
